de | septum. 16, 2015 | campaign, ECOTIC Caravan

The "ECO DAYS IN YOUR SCHOOL!" Campaign is an awareness campaign that involves the participation of schools and communities of which they are part, through teachers, students and their families, in ecological activities carried out by the educational institution registered in this eco-educational approach. The element of maximum interest is the visit of the ECOTIC Caravan to the school participating in the project.

This campaign has very clear and easy to monitor objectives: reaching as many schools as possible, and therefore a public sensitive to educational actions (students), organizing eco-education and awareness actions and finalizing them with concrete actions of collection of electrical and electronic waste and used batteries and accumulators.
